Unable to add images to my 'email with options'

Hello everyone, 

 

I am sending out an email with options and would like to add an image as a part of the mail body. I tried most of the solutions present online (such as the html tag; and even tried putting an image from a public source), but for some reason, it still does not show. Is there an easier way to do this? 

 

Also, is there any way to adjust the sizes of the boxes in the 'email with options'? And how can I allow the response to be submitted again from the same email? 

 

Thanks in advance!

You can embed your image into your e-mail. Store the image you want to use in OneDrive and then use the action Get file content using path action. Follow this with an Initialize variable action of String type. You can name the variable anything you want, such as embedded image. Then set the default value as:

David_MA_0-1686155081749.png

Use the expression builder to generate the two body.$content... expressions above. The first expression is:

 

body('Get_file_content_using_path')['body']['$content-type']

 

And the second expression is:

 

body('Get_file_content_using_path')['body']['$content']

 

When you first add them, they will look like regular expressions in the variable action:

David_MA_1-1686155329319.png

But once you run the flow they'll have the OneDrive icon as above. And of course, update the alt, width and height values to correspond to your image.

 

The put your e-mail message in HTML mode and insert the variable where you want your image placed.

Hi Pragya09,

 

In Power Automate, you can use the "Send an email" action to send an email with options and include an image in the email body. Here's how you can achieve this:

  1. Add the "Send an email" action to your flow.
  2. Fill in the required fields like "To", "Subject", and "Body".
  3. In the "Body" field, you can use HTML code to format the email content. To add an image, you can use the "img" tag and provide the source URL of the image.

Example HTML code for adding an image:

 

<img src="https://example.com/image.jpg" alt="Image Description" />

 

Make sure to replace the URL with the actual URL of the image you want to include.

Regarding adjusting the sizes of the boxes in the "email with options," Power Automate does not provide direct control over the styling of the email body. The appearance of the options will depend on the email client used by the recipient. You can experiment with different HTML and CSS styles, but the rendering may vary.

To allow the response to be submitted again from the same email, you can include a link or a button within the email body that triggers your flow again when clicked. The link or button can redirect the recipient to a web page or a Power Automate button that starts the flow.

 

For example, you can include a link like this:

 

<a href="https://flow-url">Submit Again</a>

 

Replace "https://flow-url" with the actual URL of your flow.

Remember to test your flow thoroughly to ensure that the email content, including the image and options, behaves as expected in different email clients.

 

Thanks,

Thank you, this is informative 🙂 

I tried embedding an image in the email body like this and it shows the string of characters from the image.

 

The email is sent and instead of showing the image it shows the long string of characters.

 

I'm loading the image from sharepoint not one drive. Could this have something to do with it?

 

It shouldn't matter if you get the file from OneDrive or SharePoint. Can you show how you configured your workflow? I've used the method I posted numerous times and have not had issues. If you are getting the string in the e-mail, it sounds like you may have not put the e-mail into HTML mode when you inserted the image. When I can see your flow actions, it will be easy to see if this is the issue.

this does not work. It clears our the <img src=.... and replaces with just <img>
